gems

The gems of Idunn come in every shape, color, and size. They are the condensed essence of her literal words. when she spoke they formed in the air around her head. Each one features a glyph of the word which it is. They all have some miraculous power when applied to an individual, though the effects of some have never been discovered or change every time they are used. Currently no estimate for the number of gems in existence exists, but there are vaults within most major temples guarding the valuable artifacts. The Church finds secular uses of the gems to be offensive and has put a great deal of effort into gathering all of them. The short rods of resurrection carried by the priests are topped by potent gems of this sort, and the relics of the bishops and arch bishops are embedded with up to dozens of gems with different powers, making their wielders powerful casters.
